SAN FRANCISCO said, Apple has booked a new domain name mamed AppleCoronavirus.com, after the iPhone maker and Google last week announced a joint effort to enable the use of Bluetooth technology to help governments and health agencies in order to reduce the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

The registrar of the domain is CSC Corporate Domains, a firm that protects domain names for large induatry and corporations, and it is used by Apple for its domain name registrations, reports Mac Rumors.

The new record has point out that Apple took possession of the domain name on Friday. The domain does not currently point to any active website.

Google and Apple are currently launching an exhaustive solution which includes application programming interfaces "APIs" and operating system level technology to assist in enabling contact tracing of the said virus.

The tech giants are planning to release APIs in May that enable interoperability between Android and iOS devices using the apps from public health authorities to ensure the non-spreading of COVID-19.

These official apps will be available for users to download via their respective app stores like Playstore and Appstore.

In the coming months, Google and Apple will work to enable a broader Bluetooth based contact tracing platform by building this functionality into the underlying platforms, the companies informed. Since the said virus can be transmitted through close proximity to affect individuals, public health officials have identified contact tracing as a valuable tool to help reduce the spread of corona virus disease.

Apple has already made a COVID-19 website and app together with a screening tool and other information about the new corona-virus pandemic.
